I wondered about that. Not a big fan of their cheap irons (had my
favourite little Antex 25W for yonks and yonks). I'd have a look
at it though

That did look pretty good. I've got a Dremel fretsaw with PTO
and it's not exactly portable. Or quiet. The one I got from David
Reid (remember them ?) dropped its bearings last year and sounds
like a Trabant with no clutch

So did I - only problem I found with the XS-25 is that it's far too easy to
damage the element when changing bits. Also, if you don't get the bit all the
way onto the element, the element can overheat and self-destruct.
Never had that problem with my 660TC though. You certainly get less flux
smoke when the temperature is locked to 325C. I sometimes up it to 375 if I'm
working with enamelled wire or drop it to 275 if I'm working on really
delicate components, though.
